Try andy/1999 as access info when you get a little further in. What do we want? Information, of course, though you'll have to be careful how you type it. If you find you're no longer incorrect, explore the top of the tower...

What is this thing? I put in my email address when it asked for my new address, should I be expecting something? Or, is there something else I am missing?

This all looks kind of backwards to me!

It's a site that someone at www.thedarktower.net came up with as a "gift" to the site for the holidays.

Eh, those that put in e-mail addresses were supposed to get some kind of clue to get you to the next step. It's been 2 days and nada for me.

It is over. I joined the site and followed the game. Here is a basic summery of the events that took place over a few days.

*The Sombra Corp. site was mentioned on the Dark Tower Forums
*Using a clue from Dark Tower Five people were able to get into the game and try to unlock the first riddle which had to do with typing the word information backwards
*This brought you to another riddle which had to deal with the pump riddle in Wizard and Glass as well as the number 19
*This brought you to another riddle which told you to return to the beginning
*Now, if you used you Dark Tower login you were brought to a new riddle
*This riddle was a graph listing many key words in the tower cycle and linked tower books but dealt, mainly, with the words surrounded the large 9 in the middle and revolve around Bag of Bones
*When this riddle was cracked you were now brought to another screen that had a photo of a door, a leaf and a stone. The riddle here pertained to The Tailsman, Thomas Wolfe and Wolves of the Calla
*Finally, you came to the final riddle which was a series of colours. These colours delt with the intro to Dark Tower 1
*When you put in the right answer it brought you to a screen where you found out the whole game was made up by the webmaster and it was a special Xmas gift to the fans on the forum

- - -

The original thread got up to about 100 pages and everybody was enthralled by the riddles, some stayed up later nights trying to figure them out. The webmaster stumbled a few times by not having the site updated in time and a few people answered the riddles on to find they had the wrong answer that would later be right.

In the end, the forum seemed to have a great time trying to find out the mystery.
